Determination of Arsenic in Food and Dietary Supplement Standard Reference Materials by Neutron Activation Analysis

Published

Author(s)

Rick L. Paul

Abstract

Arsenic has been measured in food and food supplement Standard Reference Materials by neutron activation analysis for the purpose of value-assigning As mass fractions and assessing homogeneity. Instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) has been used to value assign As in candidate food supplement SRMs 3532 Calcium Supplement, and 3262 St. John’s Wort Aerial Part down to about 100 µg/kg as well as two additional candidate St. John’s Wort SRMs with As mass fractions
